Towards the end of 2022, Peter Horrobin began a series of Blogs which have tracked his personal journey of understanding of the End-Times Church and which are now foundational to the work of Gates of Hope International.

Veterans in the Front Line – Easter Message 2024

He is risen! Oh what a glorious message – and it’s true! May the joy of the resurrection be yours this Eastertide.

When Jesus rose from the dead a trumpet call went out from Jerusalem which heralded the birth of the church. The end times had begun and they won’t be over until Jesus comes again and puts His feet down in Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4). Between now and then we have work to do!


Tsunamis are caused by earthquakes under the sea. When the geological foundations of the world shift suddenly, waves of unstoppable power are the result. People playing on the beaches, unaware of what’s happening and ignorant of any warnings, are suddenly and catastrophically swept away.


At critical moments in my life God has brought key books to my attention, and an urgency in my spirit has compelled me to read them. Some have been, quite literally, life-changing, life-enabling and life directing.

Lance Lambert’s book ‘Jacob I Have Loved’ is the latest in a long list of priceless books which God has used in this way. The theme of the book is ‘The Power of God to Transform a Human Life’, as seen in the life of Jacob (Sovereign World, 2007). The book has been on my shelves, unread, for fifteen years. I have passed that shelf many times each day, for at least 5000 days!


The world is in an unprecedented mess. All the things that Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24 for the end of the age are happening around us. We are being catapulted from one event to another in a never ending sequence of tragic events. This is no longer the page-turning dramas of a gripping novel. It’s for real!


In 1898 H.G.Wells impacted the world with one of the first and, arguably, one of the finest science fiction novels. For the past 125 years it has never been out of print! Wells’ plot postulated that “across the gulf of space . . . intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.”

When The War of the Worlds was serialised for broadcasting forty years later, such was the impact of Wells’ Martian invasion that it “caused panic among listeners who did not know that the events were fictional.”


In my last blog, I referred to the times we are now living through as being like ‘the days of Daniel’. Back in 1997, Robin Mark’s brilliant song ‘These are the days of Elijah’ had believers singing with joyful anticipation of the coming again of the Lord, and preparing for the days of harvest before His return.


Saturday the 7th October 2023 will, forever, be etched on the corporate memory of both Israel and the world. More Jews were killed on this one day than at any other time since the holocaust. As I write this, the world is sitting on the edge of its seat, as cataclysmic events unfold in Israel, the epicentre of spiritual earthquakes.


In the end-times we will need to get used to the fact that Jesus was right! Believers who remain faithful to Jesus and the Word of God will be under constant attack from the liberal wokery that is now prevalent across society, and which it is so easy for the church to bow down to, in an attempt to make itself acceptable to an unbelieving world. Sadly, compromising on truth only makes the church less noticeable and less relevant, as the borderlines between faith and apostasy become ever more blurred.
